9:24am
january 20th, 2009, the black unemployment rate was 12.7%. it now stands at 13.8%. charles: well, liz, he said the government's not doing enough to fix the problems. of course he had the numbers to back it up. >> black unemployment rate is double what it is for whites but it is trending down. it was 16.5% in 2011. but the fact is, the government can not fix anybody's unemployment rate. the economy is bad for everybody. charles: what i think is interesting, is that, essentially what i think what he's trying to say, at the end of the day you just said it. we have to fix it, we, individuals. start with yourself and you work through the community. ultimately the government can't do what you are supposed to do for yourself. >> that's right. but his point is black unemployment rate has always been very bad for the last 50 years, at recession levels. that is what lewis farrakhan. charles: government is no magic elixer. new developments, believe it or not on the irs scandal. lois lerner, official at head of

♪ charles: well, carl icahn, apparently he loves apple. he is going to keep on loving it. buying and holding the stock. time now for you to do the same. that's coming up. we're a minute away from the opening bell. joining the company from chicago is trey can nip pa. don't tell stuart but summers is favorite. >> i view thighs candidates as two sides from the same coin. the federal government will still spend money they don't. they will finanne the spending
9:30am
with more debt. the federal reserve will stand and backstop that and buying 75% of all new issuance of debt. do either of the candidates have slightest inclination of changing that and maybe repudiating what they're doing in washington? absolutely not. we'll continue down the same path that we're on now. charles: so, in other words, whatever happens with either one of these, from economic point of view doesn't change? argue men versus women. abrasive manner versus a non-abrasive manner. inner circle of obama being rewarded once again. but from economic point of view, doesn't matter at all, both of them will do the president's bidding? >> wouldn't it be ironic after summers is obviously famous about comments from women, it would be a great irony have them lose this race to a woman. be that as it may. charles: be that as it may. it would be a sweet irony, some would say. trey, thank you. we appreciate it.
9:31am
rather lackluster open, unchanged for the moment. do want to check out the gate. deere, big farm equipment company, had big profits in the last quarter. we often use that as something of a economic indicator. lauren, we want to find out how the shares are doing. >> up a little bit. up .2 of 1%, charles. we were seeing bigger gains in the premarket. like you said the company reported earnings, it was a big beat. sold a lost tractors to farmers. not so much a equipment to other industries. it was the farm sector that was big. we are receiving word of a voluntary recall of 7,000 tractors. that could be an item taking some momentum out of the stock today. charles: remember these earnings reflect the last three months, not what is ahead. a lot of people think the farmers might be done for now buying all the tractors. we'll see. >> yeah. charles: next up, guys, steinway piano. someone said there could abiding war. it was me. that was me.
9:32am
>> that was you. you said they willer this week. you were right, shares were up nearly 6% today. so this is the news for steinway this morning. the, john paulson's hedge fund put in a $40 per share offer. that was more than 30% premium from another offer that values the company at more than $500 million. this stock is up today. it is at an annual high and it is up 80% in 2013. charles: absolutely amazing. lvb, ludwig von beethoven. taken over by private equity. i said apple could be set to take off. we have a market walkwatcher with. much apple, you think it's a buy? >> absolutely i think it's a buy. when i was on the show last time i think it was a buy. i think it is strong and it will get stronger. charles: why has it been strong? >> it is strong because it bounced off pretty reasonable lows where people said it is fairly valued here you have to own this and i think simply the
9:33am
trajectory forward. something to do with the icahn hug. when carl comes in especially with a lot of shorts out there and herbalife, and netflix he gives them a bear hug. i'm going to own this and get long and the stock is up. >> carl may have a one billion dollar stake in apple. we don't know just yet. he is saying you know what, apple? you can borrow cheaply to buy back shares that would drive the price up to $700 a share. last time we saw that charles and gang was sent 2012. you would think they would do that, do another stock buyback? remember they did 60 billion in april. >> they did a huge amount and can easily do it again. that debt for them is nothing. they can obviously pay cash but they don't have to of the they could borrow cheaply and should be doing that. charles: the fact of the matter, $700 a share, people said it was undervalued using all traditional metrics, p-e ratios. apple is one thing. you bought blackberry on friday? >> yes.
9:34am
charles: before it took off. why dud buy blackberry because everyone else was saying this thing is dead? >> i look at stock like old rim and blackberry, is it going to find common ground somewhere near the bottom? will there be some interest because no one has any interest in it? will somebody come out of left field and show interest. all of sudden shorts that are out there. charles: how did you know precisely? did you use a chart and say, you know what, this thing looks ridiculous? i saw volume week ago, 31 million shares, no news. smart guys are out there and we want to share with the audience. how did you know that when the overall narrative that these guys were dead and done. >> i look at capital flows and volume related basis. i saw movement. you take notice. i look at the charts. i see where the support is and what the interest might be at what levels. liz: there is a danger. a third of shares are short in blackberry. could have been short covering that popped it higher. you make a good point. who will hug, to use your word,
9:35am
blackberry? will it be ibm. [will it be cisco? will it be sales force? other guys, microsoft and hp done their mobile phone kind of venture. >> there are plenty of suitors out there. if you look back -- blackberry's balance sheet there is enough cash there. there is enough ability to cut payrolls and r&d to self-finance this. you could essentially leverage the company and buy it for nothing. you could buy it with its own assets. it makes perfect sense for any deal maker. charles: having said that, you have a nice gain in it. before i let you go, i got to say will you ride it out? >> yes. think think is the way to go. i see it above 15 and going possibly to 20. this could get into a bidding war. charles: sean, that's why we love you. see you soon. two signs, that's right, two signs that spending cuts and austerity may actually be a good thing. first the pain from the sequestration. not as bad as president obama made it out to be.
9:36am
most of the major federal agencies out there, they have managed to reduce planned furloughs pretty well. some have eliminated them all together. secondly, looks like europe is coming out of recession. european economy growing in the second quarter of this year. turns out you can cut spending without the world coming to an end. at least that is what it is looking like so far, liz. liz: yeah, remember headlines out of sequester cuts, basically the sky was going to fall? biggest complainers, transportation, homeland security, education. even federal unions said we found fat to cut. they didn't have to do furloughs. reduced them or eliminated them or didn't do any furloughs whatsoever. senator tom coburn had it right. when when you put their feet to the fire they find the fat marbled through their operations to cut. charles: guess what? everyone watching the show had to do the same thing. liz: that's right. charles: american households, you're still here. we reduced household debt $1.5 trillion and the government
9:37am
said they couldn't slow the growth? >> that is proof positive, i like marblization. liz: like the steak last weekend. charles: i want to see what krugman says about this. especially europe. ace state might be working. >> deafening silence out of paul krugman. charles: maybe we were wrong about something, about liberal hollywood elites. here is some of ashton kutcher's message to america's youth. >> i never had a job in my life that i was better than. i was always just lucky to have a job. and every job i had was a stepping stone to my next job. i never quit my job, until i had my next job. charles: opportunity looks a lot like hard work. we talked to the man who wrote the book on hollywood elite. jason mattera will be with us at 10:35. i have honor of finding you seven stocks. this is interesting, gold stocks
9:38am
are casting bids. a lot of bottom-fishing by a lot of smart people. blackberry making a move. it has been edging up all week. sean said it could be a possibly $20 stock huge. sina. this is not a victory lap because i'm in it. citigroup went from a buy to a sell rating. citigroup, said you know what, we like it as a buy. that's why people don't like wall street. a couple of diabetes stocks. owe cyrus. look at this, graphics diabetes product which works with foot ulcers actually had a real good deal. efficacy. mankind could be on cusp of fda approval after years of trying for diabetes treatment that you inhale. i will try to get the ceo on the show. brocade beat the street bycents. revenues beat. guidance absolutely fantastic. the industry is coming back sooner rather than later. we're up for a few moments.
9:39am

9:44am
dozens are reported dead. more than 100 are reported injured. cameraman from fox sister station, sky news, mick dean has been shot and killed in the fighting. dean worked for sky news for 15 years. the rest of his team is unhurt. rest of the country is in chaos. ambassador john bolton will join us at top of the hour to discuss. let's check the big board. the dow is off 52 points. time for the morning gold report. gold had been hanging in there pretty good, still above 1300, $1322 a ounce. look at macy's. missed earnings around lowered the forecast for the year which includes back to school and christmas. the company also cut its prices. obviously not good for the stock. tesla ceo, elon musk promising to change the world with his ultrahigh speed transit system. he is calling a hyperloop. could it actually become reality or is it a pipe-dream? intel futurist brian johnson joins the company with his
9:45am
thoughts. brian, i love this thing. i think it is so cool. i've seen it in the movies. looks like the kind of thing eventually we'll be able to do. >> i think the hyperloop is awesome and what is really cool about it, charles, it could be real. elon didn't just go do this by himself. he sat down with his engineers from tesla and speaks x. remember these are engineers, who have number one, gotten a commercial company into space in a decade and made electric cars cool. so these people know what they're doing. and i read the report and it looks pretty good. now there's a lot of work that needs to be done but it looks possible. charles: only thing i would say, i think they said 6 or 7 billion. i betcha something like this went through it would be $100 billion. but may be worth it. it is so, really, absolutely amazing to think you could hop in one of these things. first i guess it would be small within america. maybe around the world? certainly thank the world, wouldn't it? >> well, i think it would change how we travel those short
9:46am
distances. i think that is what is really kind of interesting about it. that is what they're saying it works for a specific type of travel. they're really pragmatic about it. they're really pragmatic we want to make it for the small trips. not the huge long trips that air travel would be better for. that is what i really liked about the approach. what i liked more how it captured people's imagination. that is what is cool about this thing. you look at it, we know the devils in the details. we know transportation projects are always very, very complicated and they said that as well. but what is really cool when you read the report what it would feel like to ride the what it would feel like to get in san francisco and go down. that captures peep's imagination. that is what is important. charles: you're right. they talked about the all the bumps and everything else. let's talk about more of a reality today. intel, i know you guys are working on cool stuff too that could change transportation as we know it. >> in the short term you can
9:47am
look at cars. cars are mobile platforms we drive around. they're full of computations. consumers are expecting to have their cars to have same personalization and same flexibility that their smartphones and tablets and ultrabooks have. that is what is coming in the short term. in the long term, it gets, really, really cool. imagine if your car could gossip with other cars to keep you safer? and imagine, you're going, so go with me for a second, charles. charles: okay. >> actually a good thing. it is good goss system you're driving and you see a car in front of you slam on their brakes. now are they slowing down gradually or are they stopping really fast? if your cars were gossiping your cars would know that and be able to keep you much safer. that is what we're trying to do at intel, saying how can we take all the computational powers and get all the cars linked together to ultimately make people's lives better and ultimately save their lives. charles: what you're essentially talking about we becoming one
9:48am
with the car. the car feels us, knows us, maybe reads our brains? we become one with the car so it is almost as if, you know, because, you know, it is exciting but also kind of worrisome too in some ways. one thing i think is one day we'll all forget how to drive. i mean a lot of people are forgetting now. i don't know how to type or write anymore. i forget phone numbers. maybe that's a good thing. how far should this go to, how much skill set should we lose and give to the technology? >> well, you always have to remember, charles, that we're in charge. the technology doesn't get to decide what it does. we get to decide, human beings get to decide. i think ultimately we need to set the bar, are we using this technology to make peoples lives better and make people safer? that's really what we're trying to do. the rest of it is in the details. it is in the details about what we want. we need to talk about it, we need to say, okay, we want our cars to gossip so it can keep us
9:49am
safer but we don't want us to infringe on our privacy. that is something we think is important as well. we need to start having that conversation now. charles: we're glad you guys are on i it because i look forward to those days. we appreciate your time. >> thanks, charles. good talking to you. charles: they want to belief in global warming. they want us all to believe in global warming hysteria that the world is coming to an end. surprise, surprise, the earth is actually cooling. that's right, it is cooling. that's next. ♪

charles: we are following apple real closely today. carl icahn is in for the long haul. sean ghailani and i agree this is screaming buy. $495 a share. the same group that said in 2012 was among the 10 warmest years on record, worldwide. now that same group has forgotten to mention this new piece of evidence, news, rather. 2012 was one of the coolest years of the decade. the national oceanic atmospheric administration released state of
9:54am
the climate 2012, shows slowing down melting of arctic ice this summer. i don't know, where are the global warmers out there? where is the climate change hysteria out there? we're cooling now, liz. liz: so confusing is, there is no consensus on global warming, but people say the planet is warming, the joke it is sort of like, hey, forecast is warm with the chance of stimulus, you know. charles: that's a great point. stimulus, money. that is what this is all about. money, redistribution of money, grant money. this is always a lot about money. historically the world has gone through different climates. i think the real argument, why does it happen? is it our fault? is it mankind's fault? more specifically is it the ugly american's fault? and if so they should pay up. liz: antarctic sea ice is reportedly growing. i feel like there is so much imbalance on coverage of this and we don't really know on each
9:55am
side of the aisle. science needs to come to consensus what is happening. charles: i don't know if you can't do it without the money stimulus part. new at 10:00, we have a rarity for you, a-list hollywood celebrity used common sense. he talked about hard work. talked about respecting whatever job you get in your life. author of hollywood hypocrites will react to that. he is coming right up. we'll talk to someone from rj reynolds but their new cigarette, vu. are they looking to squeeze out, buy out or burn out the little guy. lois learner's email problems are not only problems facing irs. how the taxman is bullying small businessmen. say uneight so. next.

10:00am
♪ charles: we begin by checking the big board. the dow off 42 points. growth in europe. no armageddon there. the question is, austerity may be working. >> we were talking about places like greece and italy and portugal and spain. we do not see those headlines anymore. it could be working and now we see that even in our own u.s. government, the furloughs are not as much of a problem. charles: to me, it seems common sense. you overspend money, you start
10:01am
to save money. i wonder when we get evidence that this stuff works. right now, the evidence is absolutely phenomenal. >> right, charles. charles: right now i want to go to lauren. jcpenney's is among one of the losers. >> macy's is a loser today. it is the worst performing stock on the s&p 500. they missed expectations. the ceo says that the consumer is cautious right now. they are watching how they are buying their discretionary items. their back-to-school numbers, it is looking promising. perhaps, they will get back.
10:02am
charles: perhaps. thanks a lot, lauren. yet another story from the irs. elizabeth macdonald has more on this. >> letters went out to 20,000 small businesses. possible income underreporting. the president says he wants to smooth out the tax code. he said that repeatedly. the irs is doing it's owned data gathering.
10:03am
the thing is, the irs has credit card and debit card transactions. listen, you have underreported income. it is so confusing, they do not help the business by what amount they have underreported. charles: if anyone gets a letter from the irs, it is scary. i do not care who you are. it is a tough way to attack the only real engine of growth in this country. >> that is true. it is still pretty much what it has been historically. the thing to watch is always what the government is doing.
10:04am
when we see them christmas tree certain goods -- charles: and then we find out the hard way. another way for a key provision for obamacare. i want to bring in conservative author and radio host and on this. not too long ago, there was a one-year path to get into big companies. this is a pretty healthy path to increase our rates. >> you start wondering. this seems to me like a 1%
10:05am
issue, if you ask me. how many mistakes can one bill possibly have? charles: it is one thing to give a republican a gift and another thing for them to open it up and use it the right way. some people are saying delay it. it is not even about republicans anymore. what is the likelihood that this bill, this law could be put off or derailed in some form. >> i think that congress needs to pass legislation that says these things. the american people are screaming for this.
10:06am
they need to keep screaming. they need to get louder and louder. charles: elizabeth macdonald just noted on it. are you hearing from your listeners that there is growing anger out there? >> i am hearing from a lot of folks that voted for obama before. he is handing it over to conservatives.
10:07am
we are getting a mandate to buy a product that can be of unlimited cost. charles: you are absolutely right. thanks a lot. we have an ipo for you today. in addition to that, the egyptian government, you know what, before we do that, i want to talk about this ipo. let's go to lauren. >> it is trading above $25. charles: thank you very much, lauren. let's get back to the egyptian government. they just announced that there is a one month egyptian
10:08am
emergency. we want to bring in john bolton. i kind of thought that the morsi thing was over with. >> clearly, the brotherhood has not given up on the idea of bringing morsi back. in many respects, the brotherhood has welcomed the confrontation that we see unfolding now. they want the military to crack down. a number of them look forward to becoming martyrs. i am afraid, over the last six
10:09am
weeks since morsi was overthrown, it is predictable that this was going to happen. charles: ambassador, leaders over there actually slammed america. >> the united states needs to define what its interests are. this is the bedrock of american foreign policy in the middle east. we will take care of answers like making sure terrorists do not take over.
10:10am
second, we need in egyptian government that keeps open the suez canal. they will continue to escalate. fill us in on what exactly has gone on over there. >> china has one aircraft carrier that they have inherited. they just announced plans to build three new aircraft carriers. in a relatively short period of time they will be building capability.
10:11am
they will be able to go up against japan. three aircraft carriers is not the equivalent of america's ten aircraft carriers. we have the whole world that we need to watch out for. this is a very major challenge. charles: real quickly, ambassador, i am saying a large part of it is the idea that japan will re- bolster. we can see an arms race in asia which really would not be good for anyone. >> he has to get his economy moving first. make no mistake about it, he is a japanese nationalist. we have seen these countries conflict before. it could easily happen again.
